yiyack3: JPS looks the best buy at the moment - I've added a few this morning. It's price has gone down in the past few days against a rising index (Topix Second) and NAV, so it is back at a discount and so far today it hasn't responded to the rise of over 1% in the index overnight. If sentiment to Japan stays positive I think there could be a 5% upside to the share price in the next few days.
knowing: HONG KONG (AFX) - Shares prices across the Asia-Pacific region closed higher with Japan at its highest level in more than five years on the back of encouraging earnings from Sony as well positive December consumer price data, dealers said. The blue-chip Nikkei 225 Stock Average finished up 569.66 points or 3.6 pct at 16,460.68, its peak for the day. It was the highest closing mark since Sept 8, 2000 when it settled at 16,501.55. The broader TOPIX index of all first-section shares closed up 47.03 points or 2.9 pct at 1,690.32, off a high of 1,691.18. "Sony's results led the market today. The surprisingly upbeat numbers gave the market its strong upward impetus, raising hopes for better-than-expected results from other companies," said Norihiro Fujito, a senior investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities. He noted that some solid US corporate reports were also helping to underpin optimism in the local market. Strong consumer price data also aided sentiment, with news earlier that core CPI in Dec rose 0.1 pct year-on-year, the second month in a row the closely watched figure has posted an annualised rise. The data have increased optimism that the country is now emerging from a long period of deflation. Tokyo core CPI meanwhile rose 0.1 pct in January from a year ago, the first rise since August 1998. Sony announced yesterday that it booked its highest ever quarterly net profit of 168.8 bln yen and record revenue of 7.4 trln yen in Q3, thanks to a resurgence in two of its core businesses, consumer electronics and games. Over the week, the Nikkei gained 4.8 pct, well and truly throwing off the heavy selling seen last week in the wake of Livedoor inspired sell-off. The market closed 20 minutes early on Wed Jan 17 after news of a probe into Internet portal Livedoor over suspected breaches of securities laws triggered a wave of selling that prompted the exchange to pull the plug early, fearing its system would not cope with the mountain of orders. This week the TOPIX gained a total of 4.1 pct. Share prices in Australia also hit fresh record highs on hopes for prolonged high commodity prices and amidst takeover rumors, dealers said. The expectations for continued strength in commodities propelled index leader BHP Billiton to an all-time peak. Banks were also supported as investors are expecting the benign interest rate climate to remain for awhile. Dealers also noted that proposed changes to media ownership laws have fueled speculation that newspaper publisher John Fairfax might become embroiled in a takeover battle even before the laws are changed. The S&P/ASX 200 climbed 57.9 points or 1.19 pct to close at 4,919.3, overtaking the previous record close of 4,866.1 on Tuesday, Jan 17. For the week the S&P/ASX 200 gained 64.9 points or 1.33 pct. Dealers said BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto, which together account for 12.2 pct of the S&P/ASX 200, received an extra boost from the outcome of coking coal price negotiations with Japan's steel mills. Reports, which have still to be confirmed by the two mining giants, said prices for premium quality hard coking coal have been settled at 8.0 pct less than prices agreed to a year ago. Analysts said the outcome is better than the expected reduction of 10-12 pct, and prices remain at high levels in historical terms. BHP Billiton added 0.97 or 3.87 pct to a record close of 26.05 while Rio Tinto rose 2.14 or 2.89 to a record 76.10. CMC Markets senior dealer, James Foulsham, said BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto were the two standout stocks for the day and helped lift the rest of the market higher. "BHP opened stronger and continued to push higher throughout the day as traders scrambled to get on board as the stock continues to break record high after record high," Foulsham said. Share prices in Hong Kong closed sharply higher on Wall Street's overnight gains and the Tokyo market's continued rally, dealers said. Fresh funds inflows also provided support ahead of the Lunar New Year, they said. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index closed up 233.07 points at 15,753.14. "Hong Kong took a lead from Wall Street, Tokyo and other overseas markets, and this explains gains this morning," said Howard Gorges, vice chairman at South China Securities. "The rally which started at the start of the year and which was interrupted by a small correction appears to be continuing. Most investors are bullish," he said. Share prices in Seoul closed sharply higher on foreign investor support, rising for a fourth session, with large cap IT and financial stocks leading the rally, dealers said. Wall Street's overnight gains and South Korea's solid December industrial production, released this morning, suppressed any profit-taking moves ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays. Industrial output expanded 11.3 pct year-on-year in December, extending double-digit growth for a second month, helped by reviving domestic demand and robust exports. "Production, consumption and investment all enjoyed significant growth last month," the National Statistical Office (NSO) said. The KOSPI index closed up 31.81 points or 2.35 pct at today's high of 1,384.56, after trading as low as 1,363.12. Share prices in Singapore were also higher on expectations that there will be more earnings upside surprises after major technology companies reported better-than-expected results this week, dealers said. Technology stock Chartered Semiconductor was sharply higher after it posted net profit for the fourth quarter to December of 26.52 mln sgd, well above market expectations, dealers said. Pacific Century Regional Developments Ltd (PCRD) was sharply higher on resumption of trade following an offer from Newbridge Capital to buy more than 25 pct of the company, dealers said. Newbridge's offer involves a price of 0.27 sgd per share, or a 27.6 pct premium over the weighted average share price for the last three months, according to a joint statement by Newbridge and Singapore-listed PCRD. At 3.54 pm local time, the Straits Times Index was up 23.70 points or 0.99 pct at 2,411.92. Stockmarkets in mainland China and Taiwan were closed for the Lunar New Year holiday.
knowing: HONG KONG - Shares in the Asia-Pacific region finished mostly up with Japan supported by a rebound on Wall Street, dealers said. A slight easing in oil prices today after touching four month highs also aided sentiment, they said. The blue-chip Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed up 288.24 points or 1.5 pct at 15,648.89, off a high of 15,685.14. The broader-based TOPIX index of all First Section shares gained 24.53 points or 1.92 pct at 1,612.43, off a high of 1,615.85. Tokyo prosecutors yesterday arrested Livedoor head Horie and three other Livedoor executives on suspicion of spreading false information to improperly boost the company's share price. Following the arrests the Tokyo Stock Exchange placed Livedoor and affiliate Livedoor Marketing Co on its monitoring list. That status means if the firm is unable to satisfactorily clear its name the exchange can move to swiftly delist it. Last week when news of the Livedoor probe broke the main Nikkei index slumped nearly 1,000 points in two days with the stock exchange forced to shut down 20 minutes early on Wednesday for fear its computer system may not be able to handle the large volume of orders and transactions lined up.
vatattack: Tokyo shares end up, main index at 4yr high on weak yen, upbeat results-UPDATE 4/11/05 (Updates with share prices) TOKYO (AFX) - Share prices closed higher, with the benchmark index hitting a fresh four year closing high, as investor sentiment was buoyed by the weaker yen, some upbeat corporate results and ongoing optimism about the country's economic recovery, dealers said. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average closed up 181.18 points or 1.3 pct at 14,075.96. It was the highest closing level since May 22, 2001, when it settled at 14,091.19. The broader TOPIX index of all First Section shares rose 20.74 points or 1.4 pct to 1,494.99. For the week, the Nikkei gained 3.45 pct while the TOPIX advanced 3.5 pct. Gainers beat decliners 1,021 to 562, with 82 issues unchanged. Volume was 3.64 bln shares, barely changed from Wednesday's 3.65 bln. Yesterday, Japanese financial markets were closed for a public holiday. At the close of equities trading the dollar was being quoted at 117.76, yen, a more than two year high. Ryuta Otsuka, a strategist at Toyo Securities noted that along with the upbeat view of the economy and the fillip a weaker yen gives exporters, investors also took heart from some robust results. "Corporate results have turned out to be stronger than expected, with many companies lifting their full-year earnings forecasts," he said. Share price gains were marked in the securities, banking, machinery, computer chip and consumer electronics sectors. Mizuho Investors Securities rose 36 yen or 11.6 pct to 347, Nomura Holdings put on 111 yen or 6.0 pct to 1,96, Nikko Cordial gained 83 yen or 5.7 pct to 1,531 and Daiwa Securities Group rose 50 yen or 5.2 pct to 1,015. In the banking sector, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group jumped 70,000 yen or 4.4 pct to 1,650,000 while Resona Holdings rose 15,000 yen or 4.05 pct to 385,000. Chip-related shares extended recent gains, aided by the weaker yen. Toshiba rose 25 yen or 5.0 pct to 570, Elpida Memory jumped 165 yen or 5.95 pct to 2,940, Fujitsu rose 34 yen, or 4.5 pct, to 785, Oki Electric gained 18 yen or 4.9 pct to 384 and NEC Electronics was up 130 yen or 4.2 pct at 3,240. Among machinery makers, Minebea rose 52 yen or 10.3 pct to 557, Kubota surged 54 yen or 5.8 pct to 979 and Komatsu added 47 yen or 2.9 pct to 1,671.

Bridgestone closed up 55 yen or 2.35 pct at 2,430 after Japan's largest tire maker reported net profit of 159.36 bln yen for the nine months to September, almost double the 80.50 bln profit it reported a year earlier. It said earnings were lifted by robust tire sales which offset higher costs of raw materials. Retailer Seiyu, the Japanese affiliate of Wal-Mart Stores of the US, rose 12 yen or 4.9 pct to 257 after the company announced Wednesday that a former senior vice president at Wal-Mart International will become Seiyu's CEO, raising hopes that US-based parent Wal-Mart Stores Inc will increase its support for the struggling Japanese retailer. On the same day, Seiyu reported a net loss of 17.53 bln yen for the January-September period, nearly double the 9.04 bln loss of the previous year. Toyota rose 50 yen or 0.9 pct to 5,400. The automaker announced at the closing bell, its first half to September net profit fell to 570.52 bln yen from 584.04 bln yen in the year earlier term.
rambutan2: John Pennink's £400 million British Empire Securities & General investment trust has committed 1% of its assets to a Japanese real estate investment trust that will yield 6%.   It is also boosting its property exposure in Hong Kong. 'Our view is that central Tokyo property prices are sensible, even below those of London and Hong Kong, and with an end to the deflationary cycle in Japan it's a good time to get into the market,' said Pennink, investment manager at Asset Value Investors. The British Empire investment trust is a global fund whose share price has increased 134% over five years while its net asset value has advanced 189%, compared with the MSCI World Index which fell 3%. Pennink has just clinched a deal with Prospect Asset Management, which will float the residential real estate investment trust on the Tokyo exchange at the end of the year. The Prospect J-REIT has $120 million in assets and is expected to grow to about $400 million by the IPO date. The British Empire investment trust has contributed £4 million. Although Pennink is positive on Japan and is not worried about yen exposure, he warned that investment required a selective process and he was confident about Prospect Asset Management's skill. 'We've been working with Curtis Freeze [the company's founder] for many years and he's so excited at the opportunities in Japan now that he has returned to Tokyo from Hawaii,' said Pennink. Freeze's style mirrors British Empire trust in seeking undervalued assets, especially those with higher than average earnings. The trust holds 12% of its assets in Japan and this will be raised to 15%. Until now the highest yield of REITs in Tokyo has been 3.5%, enough to attract investors, particularly among Japanese regional banks that are more used to returns of 1% to 1.5% on state bonds. The investment trust is also positive on the Hong Kong property market. 'We're shifting about £15 million from other investment trusts into specific companies, such as the Jardine Group, Wheelock and Hang Lung, to give us exposure to the Hong Kong and China property markets,' said Pennink.
